1998 GMC 4x4 Suburban - Clicking noise when excellerating

I have been hearing a clicking sound when I excellerate and cannot figure what is making the noise. I have taken the rear wheels off to check for any problems. Found nothing. Checked the rear differential & transfer case for low oil. Found to be ok. Placed car on jacks and ran the rear wheels, but could not hear the noise. Can only hear it when there is weight on the wheels. Checked all the U joints and they appear to be ok. Not sure if it is a problem within the rear differential or the transfer case. I did replace the transfer case several years ago(used one). Any way to identify what or where the noise is coming from? I have not checked the front breaks, but don't beleive the noise is from the front.

Just changed brakes. Hear a clicking/thumping sound while driving. Is this the CVC joint going out? How to check?

Does the sound get worse when you turn the wheel sharply? Best way to check is to raise the front end and try moving the shaft(s) going to the front wheel. Should not have any play in it.

I assume you are trying to talk about the console? Clicking which goes along with driving and increases in frequency in proportion to speed is usually a wheel bearing or CV joint.

When excellerate I can hear a humming noise until I reach a certain speed or release the excellerator

It sounds like you may have a wheel bearing going out. If you can try to isolate the noise it will help. We are starting to see the wheel bearings go out on these models. It could be front or rear. If you need any more help or need hel locating the parts please let me know.

Clicking from what sounds like the rear of the vehicle.

it all depends where the noise is.
when a vehicle is put on the hoist,the suspension hangs free.
on older vehicles,this can stress components in the suspension.
have someone drive the vehicle slowly and you walk beside to see if the noise is front or back and which side.
or if you have the use of a hoist,put it up and rotate the wheels and see if there is a noise.
then check the driveshafts
if the rear wheels were removed,the shoes on the back may not be set and click...
you have to figure out where the noise is then examine all the components in that quadrant

Front-end noise

If the noise is coming from the right front when making a left turn it would be a wheel bearing if you can narrow down where the sound is coming from i would check that.
